Parent testimonials…

“The best martial art classes for my two kids is AGKK Karate. They have a very balanced approach to teaching the Martial Arts techniques along with its character and physical development in early years of my kid’s development which sets AGKK Karate apart from the rest of the Martial Arts Schools around the Brisbane area.”

Lachlan Vogel

“I am so grateful that my daughter Arianna has joined AGKK Karate and the wonderful Martial Arts classes in Brisbane at Taigum, Bracken Ridge and Albany Creek. All the Martial Arts classes are conveniently close to me.

Since beginning AGKK Karate classes earlier this year she has already reached so many goals and continues to learn new Martial Arts life skills each week in the classes.

Shihan Bernie has not only taught Arianna Martial Arts skills and techniques in the Karate classes, he has also taught her a lot about confidence and self-respect which I see a huge improvement in many aspects of her life at both home and school.

Arianna has come out of her comfort zone and made new friendships, her social skills have improved and she is learning to work together as a team with her peers and look out for those around her.

The biggest achievement through AGKK Martial Arts classes and Karate lessons has been her mental and emotional growth. Arianna is continually making conscious choices to respect her body and her confidence is growing every day.

I thank Sensei Bernie greatly for this as a lot of what he has already instilled in Arianna and her peers at Karate is courage, confidence, respect and strength.

Arianna’s focus has greatly improved in the Martial Arts classes and because of this she is getting great results each week during the Karate training making it a fun and valuable experience.

I am very proud and grateful Mum.”
